Candidates from least developed and lower middle income commonwealth countries including Bangladesh have the opportunity to study Mater’s program in the Uk on full scholarship as the Commonwealth Shared Scholarships (CSC) for 2020-21 are now open. These kind of scholarships are fully supported by a range of UK universities.
The Purpose of the Scholarships : The aim of the scholarships is identifying talented persons having the potential to bring changes to their respective countries. Secondly, the other purpose is selecting skilled and qualified candidates who cannot otherwise afford to study in Uk universities. In addition, contributing to development needs of Commonwealth countries by providing training for skilled and qualified professionals and academics who will ultimately serve the foreign policy interests of the Uk government.
Eligibilities for The Scholarships : Applicants need to meet the following eligibility requirements :
1. A citizen of or have been granted refugee status by an eligible Commonwealth country, or be a British Protected Person.
2. A permanent resident in an eligible Commonwealth country
3. Available to start his/her academic studies in the UK by the start of the UK academic year in September/October 2020
4. By September 2020, hold a first degree of at least upper second class (2:1) standard, or a second class degree and a relevant postgraduate qualification (usually a Master’s degree). The CSC typically does not fund a second UK Master’s degree. If applying for a second UK Master’s degree, one will need to provide justification as to why he/she wishes to undertake this study.
5. Not have studied or worked for one (academic) year or more in a high income country. 6. Unable to afford to study in the UK without this scholarship.
